How to remove repeated entries of Group level details?

My Crystal reports has three groups and layout is:








I'm listing details under GF3. Is there a way I can control repeated listing of GH1 and GH2 data in different lines?

e.g., my data column is: (zone, Bin, item name) and Zone is first level Group data, second level group data is at Bin level and third group is at item level.

some record are like:

(AZone, A1Bin, item1), (AZone, A1Bin, item2), (AZone, A2Bin, item3), by listing the details (zone, bin, Item) at GF3, my data is printed like this:

AZone A1Bin item1

AZone A1Bin item2

AZone A2Bin item2.

I want to print Zone and Bin level details only when these changes like:

AZone A1Bin item1


A2Bin item3

Any help on how can I achieve this? I don't want to pring Zone or Bin level details in seperate rows, these should appear together as listed above, also for fulfiling other requirements, I need to out data in GF3 section only.

    You should be able to suppress the fields when they equal the previous value of that field. An example of the conditional suppression formula would be;

    = previous( )

      on that Common Tab it also has "Suppress if Duplicated",

      however, you would be far better off to work this out by tweaking

      the query (if you can) with joins and filters.

      Hope this helps,
